The extra time to do this fell in my lap, and I had everything gear up from the Chimera to do another similar piece of art- this time, into Greek Mythology with the Manticore!

This was sort of a backup composition and layout to the prior piece with the Chimera.  Similar, but different.

From Wikipedia: The Manticore (Early Middle Persian Martyaxwar) is a Persian legendary creature similar to the Egyptian sphinx. It has the body of a red lion, a human head with three rows of sharp teeth (like a shark), sometimes bat-like wings, and a trumpet-like voice. Other aspects of the creature vary from story to story. It may be horned, winged, or both. The tail is that of either a dragon or a scorpion, and it may shoot venomous spines to either paralyze or kill its victims. It devours its prey whole and leaves no clothes, bones, or possessions of the prey behind
